How to Make Thai Red Curry Coconut Grilled Chicken
Add the chicken breasts to a resealable food storage bag.
In a small mixing bowl, add all the remaining ingredients.
Whisk until it's well combined.
Pour over the chicken and seal up the bag. Marinate for at least 24 hours or overnight.
When you're ready to grill, allow the chicken to sit at room temp for just a few minutes while your grill heats up.
Pour the gluten free marinade into a saucepan and simmer on medium low for about 10 minutes or until it has reduced by half. This turns the marinade into an amazing low carb sauce that you can brush over the chicken, just before serving.
Grill on your outdoor or indoor grill till the chicken reaches an internal temperature of at least 165F. This Keto chicken curry smells amazing and you'll be tempted to cut into it right away, but, allow it to rest for 10 minutes before cutting into it. Trust me, it's worth the wait!
Brush the sauce generously over the chicken and serve alongside lime cilantro cauliflower rice or any Keto side dish that you like. Garnish with fresh cilantro and wedges of lime to squeeze over both!
Tips for Perfectly Grilled Low Carb Chicken
- Always start off with clean grates on your grill. Because chicken breasts are so lean, they will stick to dirty grates. Brushing clean grates with a little oil helps create a nonstick surface.
- If you have large chicken breasts or if the chicken breasts are uneven in thickness, pound down the thicker side to the thickness of the thinner side.
- For a thinner breast option, you can butterfly the them, if you prefer. If you do, be sure to do this before you marinate them. This way you will get even more flavor into your chicken!
- Because boneless, skinless chicken should be grilled quickly over high heat to retain as much moisture as possible.
- Cook chicken breasts for 5-7 minutes on each side. Always use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature. You want your chicken to cook until it reaches 165F, this usually takes between 10 to 15 minutes.
- After you take the chicken off the grill, brush glaze over the chicken and cover it. Let them rest for about 10 minutes before cutting. This allows the juice to redistribute throughout the breasts.
